Mount Everest is the highest mountain on Earth. Located in the home location of Everest is the Mahalangur Himalayan range of the Great Himalayas. It arises exactly on the border line of Nepal and Tibet (27°59’ North latitude, 86°55’ East longitudes) in the southern part of Asia.
After four long and arduous years of unscrambling mathematical data, Radhanath Sickdhar had managed to find out the height of Peak Fifteen, an icy peak in the Himalayas between Tibet – Nepal border, it was discovered to be the world’s highest mountain in 1856 by the Survey Department of the Government of India,
The mountain Like other high peaks in the region, she has long been revered name by local peoples. Its collet most common Sherpa name, Chomolungma, means “Goddess Mother of the World” or “Goddess of the Valley.” The Nepali name was Sagarmatha means literally “Peak of Heaven.” Later christened named Mount Everest after Sir George Everest, the surveyor general of India – stood at 29,002 feet (8,840 meters). Its peak is 8,848 meters (29,029 ft.) above sea level. In 2005, China premeasured the height of the mountain and got a result of 8844.43 m of between ice camp; rock level.
The first ascent
There are more challenging mountains that are a better experience. But it’s a trophy. Why did you want to climb Mount Everest? British mountaineer George Mallory, who died on the mountain during his third expedition there in 1924, famously answered, “Because it’s there.
Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and; Edmund Hillary with ten expeditions over a period of thirty years failed to conquer Everest, with 13 losing their lives. Then, on May 29, 1953, Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, an acclaimed Sherpa climber and Edmund Hillary, a New Zealand beekeeper became the first to reach the roof of the world. They are the First climbers confirmed to have reached the summit of Mount Everest. They were part of the ninth British expedition to Everest, led by John Hunt. Time magazine named Hillary as one of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century.
The Geology of Everest
Sedimentary layers form most of Everest. The sedimentary rock layers found on Mount Everest are limestone, marble, shale, and pelite. Those are divided into rock formations; below them are older rocks including granite, pegmatite intrusions, and gneiss, a metamorphic rock.
Sherpas are Nepalese ethnic groups of the Himalayan resign. They are renowned for their climbing skills and superior strength and endurance at high altitudes. Perhaps the most famous Sherpa was Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, was one of the first men who reached on roof of the Earth.
The Sherpas are local people who are highly skilled and experienced climbers. Their skill is needed to prepare the route for foreign climbers to follow to the top, fixing ropes in place, and carry the necessary climbing kit up the mountain. Climbing Everest is tough and being a Sherpa is a really risky job. They quickly acclimatize their body to the high altitude.
